Some of the case studies include bagel salesmen, sumo wrestlers, public school teachers, crack cocaine dealers and parents. This is a smart, fun book; but it's not for everyone. Through a high nerd prospective, the authors deliver a slide rule and pocket protector observation of some controversial subjects.
I love the part of how a street drugs dealer so called business works and the story of how kkk was uncovered. I found useful the part of the house state agent incentives and surprising the facts about crime and the teachers cheating.
